Calvin Watkins reporting that TE Martellus Bennett to visit Giants.
I don't even know if he was on the Bears radar, but I was hoping the Bears would take a look at this guy. Apparently the Giants are giving him a serious look. That would make them even deadlier if they sign him IMO.

Bears have $17 mil left in cap space. So Jason Campbell, another WR, 2 offensive lineman (Winston and Grubbs)?

Great too bad the rest of that team is complete and total garbage. Good job giving Fitzpatrick a billion dollars because he had 4 good games.

Agreed, but that is a very good line.

If they get Meachem, that'd help them out.

Good point. Manningham would be a solid #2 WR here now.

I wonder what other holes we are planning on filling. Marshall is still expensive, at $9M per, but cheaper than V-Jax would have been. So we probably have about $10M to spend now? (given that we need to have room to sign our draft picks). Some of that will go to Jason Campbell possibly.

Not exactly where we stand with the cap as of this minute, and what that limits us to. But there have to be some moves to be made in the next 24-48 hours I'd think.

Vikings fans none too happy about the Marshall trade. Love it.

At some point we'll pick up an OT, a DE, and hopefully another WR. Abraham, Winston, and Meachem would be amazing.

You're not getting all three.

The Bears should sign a OL and DE and draft the other WR, it's a very deep WR draft and getting Marshall has already made this WR corps 10X better.

Tillman thinks Izzy will be back. Speculation on NFL network about Abraham, Winston, and Knix.

Nicks, Knox. So many names today. Whoever said it's a deep WR draft is right. Let's fix the D and O lines in FA and let Emery do his thing at WR in the draft.

This. Can probably get a WR with good potential in 2nd round IMO.

Sounds like Jason Campbell is going to be a Bears. Really like that signing. Can keep season afloat if Cutler goes down again.

Meachem was good because he was the forgotten guy on the highest powered passing attack of all time. With a crappy QB and suddenly more focus on him he will be a none factor.

Nicks is a Guard, right? Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I feel like we are OK at Guard? We need a Left Tackle. I mean, an upgrade over Chris Williams or Lance Louis / Spencer is probably a good idea, but I feel like Left Tackle is the biggest gap...and the hardest to fill.

If Meachem signed here he would be one of Marshall, Bennett, Knox, Sanzenbacher, and Hester sparingly. The thing about Meachem is that like Marshall he's tall and has great speed. Definitely a guy we could use.

Well, our GM made one of the worst moves of his career last year. He cut Jenkins and wanted Neal to have an increased role. Neal has now been suspended for four games. Based on the ridiculous shape he's in, I'm guessing he was on steroids. Injured often and a cheater. **** that move!

Yes he's a gaurd. I agree they need a tackle is why I hope they get Winston. Ideally they'd finish up free agency with Winston, Grubbs/Nicks, Campbell, and Manningham
